San Joaquin County Superior Court is seeking applicants to serve on the 2013-14 civil grand jury. The grand jury is comprised of 19 residents whose names are randomly selected from applicants nominated by Superior Court judges. They serve for one year, beginning July 1.

The civil grand jury inquiries into and investigates matters of civil concern, including the functions and operations of governmental agencies within San Joaquin County. Past reports have focused on community college and school districts, jail operations, redevelopment agencies and housing authorities.

A grand juror must be at least 18 years old, a United States citizen who has resided in San Joaquin County for at least one year, possess sufficient knowledge of the English language, and not currently be serving as a trial juror or elected public official.

The court will conduct information sessions at Humphrey's College, 6650 Inglewood Ave., Room 413 lecture hall, Stockton. Sessions will be held at 3:30 p.m. Feb. 12 and 6 p.m. Feb. 26.

The deadline to apply for the grand jury is March 8. Applications are available by calling 209-468-2827 or at the Superior Court clerk's office in Lodi, Stockton or Manteca between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays. The Lodi courthouse at 217 W. Elm St. will close to the public on March 4. Applications can also be found at www.stocktoncourt.org/grandjury.
